Talk about sensory overload. There's literally something to look at in every inch of place but it doesn't feel overcrowded or crammed. I was a kid the last time I went but the next time I'm in Gatlinburg I'd love to go again.

Took about 45 min to see and next to the aquarium it was best for the money. We went on a rainy day and avoided the big lines.

The kids really loved this. I feel like we didn't even see half of everything that was in there only because with kids you don't have the opportunity to stop and read every sign by the millions of items in here. Plenty of hands on for them though. Worth the $
